business proposal and hope you will assist based on the 
reality of this transaction

I am Mr. Abdullah Alqassab, the son of Late Nasir Alqassab. My father was
killed by a terrorist group that is operating in my country. 
Before my father was killed, he was a local oil servicing contractor.
During the peak of the war, my father made an arrangement for 
us to be evacuated to Syria with a CERTIFICATE OF MONEY DEPOSITE he made
with a financial firm. I came back to Iraq for the
burial of my father, and since then was unable to go back to Syria
